    Don't see what they are so 'livid' about, even U.S. flags are made in China. Money is what makes the world go round, not patriotism.

    But who knows what this incident my spawn... backlash against American businesses relocating to China? Personally, I hope such backlash happens.

    Economics and market forces at works again.

    Water finds its own level.

    If those people who procured these uniforms from PRC, actually procured them from an American manufacturer, it would have been more expensive, and the same person would have been asked, "Why did you get them for so much when you could get them for cheaper?"

    Double edged sword this!

    It would be nice if the US went for a Made in America campaign. At the very least when you dole out government handouts make sure it goes to your own industry.
